I can also recommend John Fox "Cox Proportional-Hazards Regression for Survival Data" (2002) which is available here: http://cran.r-project.org/doc/contrib/Fox-Companion/appendix-cox-regression.pdf

It is an S-Plus/R implementation, and has an excellent section on diagnostics. It is much easier to implement survival analysis with time-dependent variables in R than in SPSS.

Chris offers three books; he is also also better qualified to answer this question.

But I have one more source, however, that is shorter and might be a good primer: Raymond E. Wright, Survival Analysis, in Reading and Understanding More Multivariate Statistics Ch. 11, 363-407 (Laurence G. Grimm & Paul R. Yarnold, eds., 2000).

Wright is (or was at the time) a research scientist with SPSS, Inc. The chapter is written as primer, uses example applications, and contains a detailed glossary and bibliography.
